WIN 7 Firewall

Hi guys,

I would like to ask just a tiny, little question... {

When firing up some programs, the build-in firewall asks me whether I really want program to be started, or rather not. This is not bad idea. When I used to use Kerio Firewall on my old XPs, it behaved in simillar way. I say simillar, because there is just slight difference. In Kerio I was able to define, which progs. will be automatically allowed by the firewall without any bloody asking. Clever...

Here on WIN 7 I can just define, how benevolent, or strict the firewall will be. I mean that slider with four positions, which oscillates between "Never ask" and "Always ask".

So my quest. is: Is there some way to tell to my firewall: Let this program be, stop outgoing conection of this program, never allow this particular program to be started, etc...?​

Thanks in advance...

There is no exceptions option in UAC. What you may want to do:

Right-click on an exe or its shortcut > Properties > Compatibility > Check Run this program as an administrator.

(You can use a 3rd party firewall instead of UAC)

Thanks a lot mate. Maybe the third party app. would be the solution...

Have a great day!

I think I may have missed something here?? You are discussing the UAC, NOT the Firewall. If you click the Firewall - Advanced settings, in the Control panel, it will give you configuration options.

There are Windows Firewall, UAC, and Windows Defender.

If you mean Windows Firewall, not the nagging UAC, then it shouldn't be a problem at all:
